Fabian Bender (above), former head of sales real estate at Kleinanzeigen — Germany’s leading general goods marketplace — has returned to the company to take up the same role.

Bender rejoined the company on Nov 15th. He will be responsible for expanding the real estate category and partnerships with estate agents, property managers and other commercial users.

Bender had been Kleinanzeigen’s head of sales real estate for more than four years until September 2019. He left to become vice president of sales at hybrid real estate agency HomeDay, later becoming head of partnerships at broker Buena (formerly Home HT), and most recently, COO of serviced apartments marketplace Yuma. Before working for Kleinanzeigen, he was head of commercial sales at real estate marketplace ImmoScout24.

“Fabian is a renowned industry expert who has been able to sharpen his profile in various responsible positions in marketing and leasing. I am very happy that he is a part of Kleinanzeigen again. With him we have gained important reinforcement for our real estate business,” said Kleinanzeigen head of sales Klaus Saloch.

“For me, the return is a homecoming. The real estate category of Kleinanzeigen has developed significantly in recent years. I’m looking forward to working with a great team to shape the strengths of the offers and possibilities of Kleinanzeigen Real Estate in a challenging market,” Bender said.

Kleinanzeigen is owned by Norway-based Adevinta. According to Kleinanzeigen, there are more than 50 million ads on the site and it has more than 36 million monthly users.
